Sunday Shows: Republicans Buck Tax Pledge

November 25, 2012

On today’s Sunday shows, several Republicans bucked Grover Norquist’s anti-tax pledge in advance of negotiations on the fiscal cliff; Sen. John McCain lightened his critique of U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice; Sen. Carl Levin said one major challenge in the Middle East is moving Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi into alignment with the West against Iran; and two well-known spokesmen got their heads shaved to settle a bet.

Republicans Buck Norquist on Tax Pledge

Several Republicans bucked Americans for Tax Reform President Grover Norquist and his anti-tax pledge, saying that GOP lawmakers will have to keep their options open in order to strike a deal to avert the fiscal cliff.

McCain Lightens His Critique of Rice

Though he still has many questions about the terrorist attack in Benghazi, Sen. John McCain lightened his critique of U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice on Sunday. “I’d be glad to have the opportunity to discuss these issues with her,” he said.

Levin: Middle East Crisis All About Iran

Sen. Carl Levin, chairman of the Armed Services Committee, said the biggest challenge in resolving the conflict between Israel and the Palestinians is to move Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi into alignment with the West against Iran.

Kyl Suggests Benghazi Cover Up

Sen. Jon Kyl suggested that the administration covered up information about the terrorist attack in Libya “by putting out to the American people a narrative that I think will turn out to be absolutely false.”

Lieberman: Fiscal Cliff Deal ‘Not a Certainty’

Sen. Joe Lieberman said he was hopeful that Congress could avoid the fiscal cliff, but that “it’s not a done deal and it’s not a certainty.”

McCain Denounces Morsi’s Move

McCain criticized Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi for his move this week to exempt his decrees from judicial review. “This kind of power is unacceptable,” he said.

McCain to GOP: Leave Abortion Alone

McCain said the Republican Party should do a better job appealing to female voters, starting with how it communicates its stance on abortion.

Woodhouse, Spicer Lose Their Hair

The spokesmen for the Democratic National Committee and the Republican National Committee made good on an election bet on Sunday, shaving their heads on television to raise money for charity.
